London police assessing electoral fraud allegations

London's Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) announced on Saturday that it is currently assessing claims that the Conservative Party had offered posts in the House of Lords to members of the Brexit Party in the exchange for the withdrawal of their candidacy in the upcoming general election.

Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party, alleged during the week that he and eight other members of the party were approached by the Tories about standing down in the election.

Tories' leader and United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson denied the claims.
